The upper photograph Is one of the moot remarkable aviation pictures ever taken. Eight flying machines are seen in the field, with Paul,
han, in the center of the group, leaving the ground in the Farman biplane for his sensational invasion of skyland. At the lower left is shown Clif
ford B. Harmon's balloon, the New York, piloted by the owner. Under the New York is the Curtiss biplane No. 5. At the lower right is Roy
Knabenshue's dirigible, in front of which is the original Curtiss biplane. In the rear of the dirigible is the third Curtiss machine. A captive balloon
is shown at the upper left.
The lower crowd picture shows the tense moment in the boxes when Paulhan's spirals in the sky were narrowing to an almost straight
ascent as he apparently pierced the blue. —photo by cole—copyright.

Paulhan made six rounds of the field, but in none of them did
he equal the time made by Curtiss.
Balloon "Dick Ferris" landed on the sea coast above Redondo,
making successful descent.
Paulhan, in a Farman machine, flew 600 feet in the air to meet

FEET! That is the record height reached by the intrepid
French man-bird, Louis Paulhan, yesterday afternoon when he
sailed away in his new Farman biplane up into the clear blue sky
over the heads of 50,000 people at the aviation field at Dominguez.
P.iulhan's feat is more than the mere breaking of a world's rec
ord. It marks an epoch in aviation and in history, for it is one of
the greatest achievements of all time in showing that heavier-than
air machines can attain great heights.
Of course there will be those who dispute the record. Some
will be Americans and others will be of other nations. Hubert
Latham, whose flight of 3280 feet made but a few days ago, probably
will be one of those to object. But aneroid barometers and transits
in the hands of trained engineers and mathematicians do not falsify.
F.ver will Los Angeles be remembered as the place where Paulhan
broke the world's altitude biplane record, ami ever will Los An
geles be the biggest and brightest spot on the aviation map.
Today Paulhan is the idol of the world, the envy of aviators and
the pride of La Belle France and Los Angeles, for he has proved his
worth in every flight he has made since the moment he first started
the engine in his biplane.
Such sights as were seen yesterday at Aviation field are the
sights of a lifetime. Daring, skill and scientific achievement were
coupled so closely that one could scarcely tell where one began and
the other left off.
First came the feats of skill and daring while the balloon "New
York" was being brought to anchor in the center of the field. Paul
han and Knabcnshue vied with each other in attempting to get close
enough to the balloon to carry on conversations with those in the
basket. Then came the speed trials, in which Glenn H. Curtiss made
a record of 1.61 miles in 2:13 1-5. And last and greatest of all came
the wonderful flight of Paulhan. If there was needed a touch to
make the 50,000 spectators absolutely aviation-mad, that touch is
vet to be made known. And still there are other records to be broken,
other sights to see, so that by the time this greatest meeting of the
air kings comes to an end the whole world will acknowledge Los
Angeles as the ideal aviation city.
" It was "San Diego day" at Dominguez field yesterday, and just
to make the 5000 visitors who came to Los Angeles under the pilot
age of Col. D. C. Collier feel that their long trip had not been in vain,
General Manager Dick Ferris, working with the various aviators,
planned a program of excellence. It worked out just that way, too,
for every event was a greater success than the one which preceded
it. Some of those unfortunate persons who went home about 4
o'clock will live to regret their action, for they missed the great Paul
han flight.
There's a little secret in connection with Paulhan's flight. He
may not want it known, but inasmuch as he has broken the rec
ord the telling will do no harm.
It was pique which forced him up so high into the air!
Think of it! Paulhan was piqued because he had been beaten
by Curtiss in the speed trials and he determined right there and then
to go up so high he would make every other aviator in the world
green with envy.
After Curtiss had made his record, Paulhan started in with his
biplane to better the record. Through some error he did not un
derstand that he was to circle the track six times. He went around
'He was told Curtiss' time before leaving the ground. When he
came to earth he anxiously inquired how fast he had gone. When
told that he had failed to duplicate or better Curtiss' records, the lit
tle Frenchman pulled his cap down over his eyes and exclaimed in
